Eucalyptus, summer, & silk

Embracing the opportunity of summer’s super heat to do some botanical dyeing on silk, and then introducing some extra hues of the rainbow, brought delightful results.

These colours are permanent because I avoid plants that produce fugitive dyes, and the effect brings colours that are so so soft, yet retain the colour of Australia’s bush.
